The Brewers have made two acquisitions in as many days. Here are some quick scouting reports.

Yesterday we reported (via Mike Vassallo) that the Brewers had claimed pitcher Arcenio Leon off waivers from the Astros. They made another acquisition on the first day of free agency today, as Vassallo just tweeted the following:

Let's start with Leon. He's a 26 year old Venezuelan native who has spent all of his eight professional seasons (including two in the Venezuelan Summer League) in the Astros organization, pitching almost exclusively in relief. He appeared in 44 games for AA Corpus Christi in 2012 and posted a 4.38 ERA over 63.2 innings. He's currently pitching for Zulia in the Venezuelan Winter League.

Olmsted, meanwhile, is a 25 year old right hander who the Mets drafted in the ninth round back in 2007. He missed the entire 2009-10 seasons but has come back in a big way in the Red Sox organization, posting a sub-2 ERA over the last two seasons while climbing from rookie ball to AA. He struck out 14 batters per nine innings over 47 minor league appearances this season.

Even with Olmsted and Leon the Brewers have just 34 players on their 40 man roster, by my count.
